Our Main Presentation

Dr. Andrea Isella of Rice University will present a talk "C.L.E.V.E.R Planets Project, an Update".

You can learn more about him and his research here:


The talk include what it takes to make a life-bearing planet:

1)    Form the planet

2)    Bombard the planet with a source of water

3)    Geology releases life-giving elements

4)    Life-giving elements are redistributed

5)    Life-giving elements recombine and life arises
Each of these has a research group. Dr. Isella's group studies step #1: Where, when, and how do rocky planets form? What is their abundance of ingredients necessary for life?
